Always have at least one evening meal in the Lakeside when in Newquay. Tonight wonderful prawn cocktail, steak and cheesecake what an amazing taste sensation. You will not get better food anywhere and the waitresses are polite and good fun too. Looking forward to next time.

Great for if you just want coffee too, served with... More

We have been here several times for coffee in the daytime, it is usually packed with Mums and babies. There never seems to be enough staff on in the day so you have to wait ages for coffee which is a shame. However in the evening it is fantastic, amazing food, great service and a lovely atmosphere.

When we entered it was very busy with only 1 table free, all a good atmosphere with plenty of groups, couples and families in. The waitress was very helpful and honest letting us know there would be approx.... More

I have visited the restaurant on a number of occasions in the past and have found that they are constantly under staffed and that it takes a very long time to get served. I left without ordering on the occasion before this visit after waiting to be even acknowledged by the staff member on duty at the time in 40... More

We had a pleasant lunch, we did not book so had to sit at a small coffee table, our own fault for not booking as they are a popular place. The food was good as always my Pulled Pork was very tasty and they were happy to do fresh bread for my elderly father rather than toast with his pate... More
